Metroland to officially release'Brother' single tomorrow - 1 year after Louis Zachert passed away

“Brother” is the third and final single from “Things Will Never Sound The Same Again”, the album that Metroland created solely as an In Memoriam for their sadly departed friend, sound engineer and Passenger: Louis Zachert who passed away exactly 1 year ago tomorrow, August 3.

Alfa Matrix has made the double EP available via Bandcamp, other download platforms will follow in the next days.

For this new release, Metroland reached out to their fan base and fellow artists with a remix competition, giving them a chance to use music as their personal message. The outcome offers you 7 remixes spread across 2 separate EP’s, each remix created to pay homage and to honour Louis.

Next to those remixes, Metroland recreated and reworked “Brother” in 2 new versions and recorded a brand new song, aptly titled “See You”. Just like “Brother”, “See you” holds revamped samples from one of the bands that Louis regarded as ‘brilliant’.
